Where Comes Discreti Non Separati From Tertullian?

I have found several commentators summarize Tertullian concerning the relation of the persons of the Trinity with a formulation, "distincti non divisi, discreti non separati" (distinct not divided, discrete/different not separated). "Distincti non divisi" comes from Against Praxeas, chapter 11 as a quote "distincti inquam non divisi" but I can't find anywhere that Tertullian says "discreti non separati". Its used by Moltmann, McGrath, Horton and others but where does that last phrase come from?
